Let’s take a few minutes out of our daily lives and help a kind brother to fulfill a birthday wish for his sister. Harold Scott wrote to the Good News Network and asked if I could post his story:
Teresa has lived with cerebral palsy her entire life, and, was also diagnosed with lupus some years ago. She is mostly wheelchair bound these days, but continues to enjoy watching and feeding the hummingbirds, growing flowers, playing with her dog, and doing some painting.
I have tried to imagine my life as hers, in that she has never been able to walk on her own, without some type of assistance — usually with the help of my Mom. She lives at home with my parents, is their only daughter, and the oldest of my siblings. (There were 5 boys that came along after her.)
Teresa has never failed to send out cards to family and friends for birthdays, holidays, or for just no reason, other than wanting to do something nice for others, so, it is with this reason, and, because I love her, that I am asking you to send her a card for her birthday, so, that she will feel special, and appreciated. I would like it if her mailbox runs over with cards this year.
Teresa is my hero, and sets an example of kindness and strength. Please help me, by sending birthdays wishes to her — only cards that are in good taste — to make her day a bit brighter.
Teresa turned 58 years old this week. Even though they may be late, cards will be much appreciated. I am hoping for 500 cards to be mailed to her via the U S Postal Service.
Send cards to: Teresa Scott, 235 Fairview School Lane, Gainesboro, TN. 38562
